WORKSHOP - Monday, Sep 13 - 10:00AM-6:00PM
Hawaiian Holistic Approach to "Quick Healing"
With Kumu Alva James Andrews, a gifted spiritual and physical healer, native of Hawai’i, father, grandfather, and Viet Nam veteran. 10am – 6pm (1 hour lunch break), snacks and refreshments provided throughout the day, restaurants and ocean nearby for break time rest and relaxation, and digestion of food and knowledge.
- 7 HOUR WORKSHOP (ALL AGES, ALL SKILL LEVELS)
- PHILOSOPHY BEHIND LOMILOMI AND WHY IT IS NOT JUST A MASSAGE
- HANDS ON DEMONSTRATION LEADING TO HANDS ON APPLICATION
- OVERVIEW OF HARMONIC BALANCE (SPIRIT, MIND, AND BODY)
- HAWAIIAN VALUES AND TRADITIONAL CONCEPTS
The form of lomilomi, or Hawaiian massage, that Kumu Alva shares incorporates the use of ho’oponopono, along with the traditional hand and body applications. Kumu believes that there is a connection between the spirit, the mind, and the physical body. Thus, the function of a good lomilomi practitioner is to harmonize the various parts of a person’s being, in order to make them permanently healthy and balanced. There is a spiritual, mental and emotional dimension that must be factored into the Holistic approach that Kumu uses. For him then, lokahi, or unity, is what is needed to effect permanent good health. Kumu firmly believes, as his ancestors did, that the body cannot be healed until the spirit is healed.
Please come prepared with an open mind and an open heart. Dress comfortably. NO PRIOR TRAINING IS NECESSARY. All tables, sheets, and oils (if necessary) will be provided.
